Canberra Secrets personalised tours provide a true local perspective of what makes this city tick, highlighting the secrets and the quirky within — from the national attractions, through to the city’s thriving cafe culture and the wonders of the Australian bush. We provide tours listed on our website and also tailor private, personalised tours. Each tour provides you with a unique experience. You’ll see the sights but also discover the ‘secrets’ and the quirky things that are little known, behind the scenes. Tours vary to allow flexibility, spontaneity and to give you the best possible experience. These tours are not filled with tired, churned-out tourist rhetoric. You will receive factual up-to-date information, entertaining narrative, great stories of things from ‘behind the scenes’, and, most importantly, you’ll have fun! Why not experience a Canberra Secrets Highlights Tour, a private tailored tour, a beer and brewery tour or a winery tour. Or just tell us what you you'd like!
